Jonathan-Anenih-patience1A Muslim cleric, Mumakai Unagha, has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to stop his wife, Patience Jonathan from interfering in the activities of government.

Unuagha, an erstwhile Vice President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) said, “Mrs. Jonathan’s meddlesomeness in governance is complicating the volatile situation in the nation.”

This call is coming following the reports that the First Lady had endorsed governorship candidates in some states.

Reacting, Unagha said, “The utterances of the First Lady are unbecoming in recent times; she is not an elected representative of the people.

“She is entitled to her opinion as a Nigerian, but it was wrong for her to assume the role of Information Minister and other agencies, who speak on behalf of the Federal Government.”

He flayed Mrs Jonathan’s establishment of commission on the abducted Chibok girls, saying it was illegal because she lacks the constitutional rights to set up a commission on the matter.

“It is only the President and relevant government agencies that have the constitutional rights to do that. Even at that, such agencies must seek clearance from the President.

“Let her be more concerned with non-governmental organisations rather than governance.” He said.
